Porirua Park will be the place to be this Satur­day.

North­ern United and Tawa had con­trast­ing for­tunes in the penul­ti­mate round of rugby’s Swin­dale Shield on Satur­day, with the Porirua side go­ing down in a close bat­tle with Wainuiomata while Tawa thrashed Pare­mata Plim­mer­ton.

The re­sults means Norths, Poneke, Tawa and Up­per Hutt will be seek­ing one of the three re­main­ing places in the Ju­bilee Cup on Satur­day. The match be­tween Norths and Tawa at Porirua Park will be crit­i­cal.

Norths shot out to 9-0 against Wainuiomata at Porirua Park, thanks to three Jack­son Gar­denBa­chop penal­ties. Winger Te Kahui Bishop then crossed, but Wainuiomata cut the lead to seven at half­time with two quick tries.

Two more af­ter the break gave the vis­it­ing side the lead, and though Gar­den-Ba­chop cut the deficit to three points late on with a try, it wasn’t enough to se­cure a cru­cial win.

In a Porirua basin derby at Lyn­d­hurst Park, TJ Fer­ma­nis was on fire as Tawa reg­is­tered a big win over Pare­mata Plim­mer­ton.

He scored a try and was ev­ery­where as the home side pun­ished Pare­mata Plim­mer­ton’s mis­takes re­lent­lessly, win­ning 68-0. Ran­dall Bishop kicked nine con­ver­sions in a near-flaw­less dis­play with the boot.

In Cen­tral League football, West­ern Sub­urbs were ex­pected to stroll to a win over Lower Hutt at Fraser Park, but the match fin­ished 0-0. Wests re­main in fourth, on 15 points.

In Welling­ton premier rugby league, St Ge­orge Dragons were beaten 44-10 by com­pe­ti­tion lead­ers Whiti Te Ra at Otaki Do­main, and Porirua Vik­ings over­came Up­per Hutt Tigers 32-18 at Whakatiki St.
